Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences
The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences (FZU) is a public research institution which carries out basic and applied research in physics. In power photonic, FZU focuses on the interaction of laser radiation and matter and the creation of a new national platform for new laser technologies research and development. The new laser systems at HiLASE and ELI Beamlines have great potential not only in basic research but also in applications and hi-tech industry. The project of Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) is currently the largest investment project of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
The ELI Beamlines Center provides research capabilities with a wide range of ultra high-intensity lasers excited by high-end lasers. These secondary sources, especially those based on completely new concepts, produce pulses of radiation of the highest intensity and quality of the beam, including electromagnetic radiation in a wide range and charged particles such as electrons, protons and ions.
